Teaching School Hubs form the national backbone of the golden thread of professional development.

High Quality Professional Development

Teaching School Hubs also promote and offer other high-quality evidence-informed professional development to teachers and school leaders in their area.

The Department for Education’s (DfE) Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy sets out an aspiration that every teacher, at every stage of their career, is supported and encouraged to not just to stay in teaching, but to thrive. The quality of this support also serves to attract more new entrants to the profession, tackling challenges with teacher supply.

Centres of Excellence

Teaching School Hubs are the national network that achieve this aspiration. Hubs are school-led centres of excellence for teacher and leadership training and development, supporting teachers and leaders at all stages of their careers. They draw on their expertise and local knowledge to play a leading role in workforce planning and development in their areas.
